Freight Companies

*can this get made sticky please*

Just want to know some recommended freight places in Qld.

Having a bit of trouble at the moment, I need to get Calais seats and Front from Brisbane to Rockhampton. Not having too much luck finding a cheap joint that does personal deliveries.

Followmonts Transport & Fitzroy Taxi Trucks run daily service from Brisbane to Rockhampton. They will be your cheepest by far as they are the companies that majority of Linehaul companies use for there cross docking in Rocky, any other company will charge their fees plus what one of these company charges for cross docking. If you don't have any luck PM me & I will work something out for you.

Thanks,

And nah Larry, Johns had it and I was waiting until I got the interior until I got it sent up. Just sending the car in to get resprayed now so I need it a bit more urgently then I did before.

As for the freight companies, does anybody know what NQX's deal is?
I've dealt with them on a few occassions and they've sent stuff away for me. I remember sending a manual conversion to Melbourne for 60 dollars. And now all of a sudden they're saying they don't do private jobs. Thats mega ghey.

Pack and Send will do anything, anywhere..... at a price.

example: series 2 bottom end to Kentucky, USA = $730 shipping alone, to get it there by air in 2 days was $2000+

Yeah I haven't had much luck with pack and send to be honest. They're prices are always ridiculous. But I guess if your keen your keen.

What the hell were you sending a block to kentucky for?

I use fastaways the only catch is you pay say $300 for there labels [20] excess labels [20] they will pick from anywhere & deliver to anywhere & it works out relatively cheap for instance i sent a crank pistons rods [v8] to melb from cairns cost $50
they have a weight limit of 25kg per item & there labels are insured for up to $1500
if something goes astray or broken the only catch is you need to buy the minnimum amount of labels but its no problem because you will probably use them enough to get your money's worth.
For bigger items i use NQX sent a diff from cairns to brissy $85 a v8 block cairns to melbourne $85 had a diff sent from sydney to cairns $120 thats all depot to depot & you will need to use a registered buisness name as they dont handle stuff without useing it for some reason which is easy because you use the place you work for or a friends buisness place & can still pay for the freight on the spot.

so i called Pack Send and they are like... yep we can send that... $320 please...

then i realise... hang on, i have an ABN, im a retard i can use NQX...

one phone call later, the calais front is on its way for only $44.

How much do you want to pay. I used canberra carways and even though they weren't fantastic, they were the cheapest between rocky and newcastle.

K & S Freighters are good for long distance and interstate shipping.

I sent a full LE bodykit to Perth for $120.
They sent a Semi around to my house to pick it up, went via Melbourne and Adelaide, then the Semi dropped it off at the other fella's house.

From Ballarat to Townsville, NQ it cost $150 for x 18" x 8" rims with tyres through NQX.

I have also used them to send a set of pacemaker extractors to NSW somewhere, it cost $80 for those.

I wonder how much it would cost to have an engine from down south palleted up here? $500 easy?

Jason.
